Ori and the Will of the Wisps is the latest Xbox One and Windows 10 exclusive from Moon Studios. It's the follow-up to the 2015's acclaimed Ori and the Blind Forest, but is it as good? We dip our toe in critical waters to find out.\u00a0 Creating a sequel to Ori and the Blind Forest was never going to be an easy task for Moon Studios, but based on the overwhelmingly positive critical response for Ori and the Will of the Wisps, it appears the studio has once again struck gold. Ori and the Will of the Wisps refines and expands on what made the first game so\u00a0special\u00a0with a delicate and affecting story, a glorious, imaginative world to explore, and some spectacular boss battles. Here's our pick of the game\u2019s reviews. Ori and the Will of the Wisps review round-up Mashable "When everything lines up so perfectly like it does in Will of the Wisps, it's hard to pull away. It's an experience that's probably familiar to those who've played some of the legendary games that make up the 2D platforming pantheon \u2014 games like Super Metroid, Celeste, Hollow Knight, and Super Meat Boy." Not scored\u00a0- Review by\u00a0Kellen Beck PC Gamer "I prefer Ori and the Blind Forest for its compactness and simplicity, but Ori and the Will of the Wisps is also worth playing to the end. It trips over its complexity at times, and really doesn't need so much combat, but it's gorgeous, funny, and the triple-jumping could go on forever without getting old." 81\/100\u00a0- Review by Tyler Wilde Polygon "Ori and the Will of the Wisps offers a gorgeous world to explore and a varied, creative series of abilities and tasks that guide my exploration and help me see more of this wonderful place. It expands my options in combat and offers me more to do, and mostly benefits from that added complexity, while losing some of its focus in the process." \u00a0Not scored\u00a0- Review by\u00a0Andrew King GameSpot "Ori's suite of acrobatic moves makes delving into new areas a thrilling treat. Exploration becomes especially engaging as you unlock more abilities and become increasingly adept. Some of them are lifted directly from the first game, which can be disappointing next to the excitement of discovering a shiny new ability. Still, those old standbys still work well and make the improvisational leaps and bounds feel as great as ever." 8\/10\u00a0- Review by\u00a0Steve Watts VentureBeat "As a huge fan of Ori and the Blind Forest, Will of the Wisps is everything that I could have wanted from a sequel. It\u2019s a longer adventure with fantastic additions, especially the incredible boss fights. The ending sequence will go down as one of the best in gaming history. The occasional technical problems can be annoying, but I\u2019d put up with five times as many bugs to play through this masterpiece." 98\/100\u00a0- Review by\u00a0Mike Minotti Videogamer "I would place Ori and the Will of the Wisps in the small catalogue of games, tucked into a sunny corner of my mind, from which I would make prescriptions for anyone with rainy spirits. The solution, when life stands no chance of imitating its art, is merely to jump back in." 9\/10\u00a0- Review by\u00a0Josh Wise IGN "In Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Moon Studios has taken an excellent foundation and made even more out of it. Its many new elements expand on and add to the first game\u2019s fun without bogging it down or becoming overcomplicated. And that\u2019s really the best praise you can give a sequel - it stays true to the spirit of the original, doubles down on what made it great, and gives you more stake in the world and options to navigate it." 9\/10\u00a0- Review by\u00a0Brandin Tyrell Other publications \tTheSixthAxis - 100 \tGameInformer - 95 \tVGC - 100 \tTwinfinite - 90 Title: Ori and the Will of the Wisps Developer: Moon Studios Publisher: Xbox Game Studios Release date: March 11, 2020 Platform: Xbox One, PC (Available via Xbox Game Pass) Visit our new releases section for more on this week\u2019s new video games.
